The Honest Junk Co.

Chicago’s premier junk removal company that just happens to fund a non-profit.

About Us:

The honest story is that we really don’t love junk.

But what we do love is helping people.

As the only 501c3 junk removal service in Chicagoland, we assure that all goods collected at a pickup that can find a new home will be donated to our partnered nonprofits.

Honestly, they do.

Additionally, all proceeds from The Honest Junk Co. go towards The Chicago Furniture Bank, a nonprofit that gives away furniture to their clients leaving shelters and moving into permenant housing.

This all proves that sofas may go out of style, but honesty never does.

What we take:

New and used couches, chairs, desks, newspapers, cardboard boxes, electronics, appliances, mattresses, paint, scrap metal, items covered in cobwebs, spare lumber, unloved toys, and lots of other things you’re too lazy to sell on Craigslist or move.

About our prices:

What differentiates us from others is that we give all usable items to nonprofit partners to both help the community and reduce waste in landfills. As an 501c3 junk removal service, we also offer itemize charitable contribution receipts for all items that can be donated as well as 80% of the removal fee.

With honesty comes upfront and transparent pricing. We charge market rate for our service and price by the cubic foot as we send larger trucks.
